“I had the great blessing of growing up in a family in which faith was lived in a simple, practical way. However, it was my paternal grandmother in particular who influenced my journey of faith. She was a woman who explained to us, who talked to us about Jesus, who taught us the Catechism....This is how I received my first Christian proclamation, from this very woman, from my grandmother! This is really beautiful! The first proclamation at home, in the family!”
Pope Francis

Bartholomew House: Bartholomew House is part of Victory Housing, the non-profit development arm of the Archdiocese of Washington which has been deeply committed to providing quality housing and services for over two decades. Bartholomew House opens its doors to all qualified seniors without any limitation or discrimination. Staff encourages the residents to enjoy an independent lifestyle while receiving all the conveniences of home, from delicious home made meals to housekeeping services. Thus, the residents have more time to socialize, participate in recreational activities, or just read a favorite novel. The residents also enjoy peace of mind, knowing that when supportive services are needed, the caring staff members are there to assist them. You may reach Joe Hanle, Director, at 301-320-6151 or additional information is available at Victory Housing.

Prayer of interior peace

Let nothing disturb you, let nothing frighten you. All things pass. God does not change. Patience achieves everything. Whoever has God lacks nothing. God alone suffices.-St. Teresa of Avila (1515-1582)
